6:01 am
chester, lancaster maybe even little bit of berks counties, this morning. and your weather by the numbers, going with four out of ten not everybody will see this accumulating snow, but we need to be ready for t bus stop buddy sure s he's all bundled up this morning with the snow boots on, as well, so here is a breakdown of what's going to happen. it is going to be an event during the morning rush. heaviest snow will be south and east of i-95, if you're north and west of the city, you may not see anything, and if you do, it won't be much more than flurries or snow showers. whatever you get it will taper off by the middle of the day, several inches of accumulation, in southern new jersey, and the state of delaware, where we will have the breakdown of who gets what, take closer look at radar coming up in just a few moments. but we've got a look at some snow already coating the ground. where is this, bob kelly? >> we have the snow machines working. this is live look, delaware's route one. right by the airport. to give you an idea how quickly the road conditions are changing, it is only matter of about five, ten minute, from the time you
6:02 am
start to see the first flakes, to where we start to get the snow coating. and again, you can see coming through the intersections here, what i'm concerned about is that underneath this coating could be the slippery icy spots that are left over from last week's storm. let's roll through some of the cameras here. to kind of give you idea of the different road conditions, again, this is route one down in delaware, again, with the weather conditions, messing up our cameras little bit there. i apologize for that one. going to up outside ocean city. this is route nine, just outside of somers point. so as sue mentioned, this is storm that's going to impact south delaware, south jersey, and as it is on the move you saw what it just did to the delaware roadways, that's what's happening, starting to happen here, in ocean citiment going back to the same intersection there, so the garden state parkway already has speed restrictions in play, because of the weather and an accident in collegeville, ridge pike, at eagleville road. germantown pike would be the best bet there.
6:03 am
but, otherwise philadelphia, not seeing any flakes at all right now. so, we are getting break on the schuylkill, the boulevard and portions of i-95, but again, the further south and east you travel this morning you are going to see the road conditions change. the market frankford line, broad street subway, running on time, the buses are not operating, we had the overnight night owl service, so good to go with the trains. the paoli thorndale media elwyn, all of the lines running without a problem. septa just reminds you that the slippery platforms in those stairs, will be something we have to watch once the storm kicks into our area here. coming out of chester county again, getting a break. no flakes at all coming out of downingtown, west chester or malvern. and mass transit and the airport looking good, at least for the moment. chris, alex, back over to you. >> thank you bob. 6:03 violent night in philadelphia, police are investigating a series of shootings overnight, in a short time now. talking two hours here. >> yes, some that far violence resulted in death.

6:06 am
in at home in the borough of brooklyn now third man was taken into custody in florida officials say they wanted to wage a war against the united state. but, an attorney for one of the new york suspect says the feds are moving too quickly. >> yes, the idea that it was made quite plane by the stage, if they were not able to go, that they would seek to require weapons here, so, machine gun and speak to attack very specifically police officers. >> reporter: federal agents say two of the three suspect have ties to our area. they say one ran kiosk at malls in the philadelphia area, and one was an employee; however, officials have not said which malls. >> well, 6:06 a.m. we now know what caused a house to explode in south jersey watch investigators found at the scene. >> and later the mummers get ready to take over manayunk. why they had to delay their mardi gras parade and when you can see them. coming up.

6:14 am
mississippi and louisianna are also shoving several inches, and having this much snow in the south is rare. now, i have some family of course in texas. >> right? >> they had two days off of school. and it was barely, just little bitty pieces of ice sue. wouldn't even last. >> even the phillies down in florida are getting temperatures in the low 60s. >> oh, how terrible for them. >> i know, all relative, isn't it? >> yes. >> that's it. so for us, we are watching this southern storm. as it continues to spread the snow, not only into our area, but most of virginia, getting snow, most of maryland getting snow all three counties of delaware, and we expect the most accumulations in sussex county, thus that school closure. i think we'll see a lot more of those. now that the snow is making itself evident. most of southern new jersey getting light snowfall right now, lancaster county, and chester county, in pennsylvania, and we're starting to see little snow sneak into perhaps delaware county.
6:15 am
so that's the area, those are the areas that we're watching right now. here in the city looks like it is getting close. it will be very close call for us, in philadelphia, whether we get much, if anything, out of this storm. but we continue to watch everything mover from south to north, so that's why sussex, under winter storm warning for higher amounts of accumulations, and then everybody else that is under that winter weather advisory, expecting a messy commute this morning. but, maybe not as much as the three to 6 inches down south one to 3 inches for most of the south jersey, northern delaware situation we may get coating to inch in philadelphia. again, we are right on the edge there whether we will get snow or not. 28 degrees right now in philadelphia, it is certainly getting colder, 24 in lancaster, 12 in mount pocono, 31 degrees in millville, new jersey and 32, right at freezing, in dover delaware, where they are starting to see little bit of light snowfall as well. so, this is a morning event. it should be out of here by 1:00, 2:00 at the very latest,
6:16 am
and then, we'll get some sunshine by tomorrow. in the afternoon probably. high of 29 degrees, so it gives us another frigid friday. stays pretty cold saturday. upper 30's sunday. now the models are showing whatever precipitation we get may not come until sunday night into monday. we will see what happens with that. and, messy weather potential on tuesday and wednesday but first, we got to get through this storm. whatever you're showing us right now very white bob kelly. >> yes, this is live look, right near dover speedway, down in delaware. as you mentioned dover and south jersey, getting hit hard. and quickly in the last half hour the road conditions have casino of gone south pretty much you got one lane open here. but again, the crews have been out there. what i am concerned about is that far left or right side of this road surface here, that may have some left over ice underneath it. once you put coating of snow on top of it, it is a whole new game for everybody. good morning to rehoboth. here is a live look, one of
6:17 am
the major roadways, down in rehoboth beach delaware, so again, the snow's on the way. if you look out your front window, don't see it yet look at south jersey here, 47 and 347. just outside of rio grand the back end of wildwood here, you can see it really coming down pretty good clip here in the overhead street lamps. and because of the weather moving into south jersey here, speed restrictions in play, up and down the garden state parkway. but if you are leaving say king of prussia conshy, no delays at all on the schuylkill expressway, cameras still dry and the roads are dry. an accident though in collegeville, ridge pike, eagle view road. folks using the germantown pike. but what's going to be tough about this storm is that the road conditions are going to change during our morning rush hour. and of course, for mass transit, the market frankford line, the broad street subway, no problems at the moment. watch for weather delays, though. i'm going to bet awe jelly donut we'll have delays down
6:18 am
at philadelphia international airport. nothing reported at the moment. but again we haven't seen the first flailing hit the airport area. some flights coming in from other cities could already have delays, and so just check with the airline before you head down to the airport. and once you start hitting the regional rail lines all of the septa platforms, the stairwells, could be a little slippery. but at the moment, regional rail lines looking good. and if you are coming in from say chester county, out from downingtown, no problems at all, from west chester up through malvern. >> chris, al edges back to you. >> syrian activists say the number of christians abducted by state militants in northeastern syria had a riz tone 220. isis began abducting them monday when militants attacked a cluster of villages sending thousands of people fleeing to safer areas. >> public feud between us and israel is increasing after benjamin netanyahu accused world powers of rolling over to iran. the prime minister says in action on iran, is allowing the country to develop nuclear power. but secretary of state john
6:19 am
kerry questioned the prime minister's judgement on this issue. the comment come ahead of netanyahu's visit to congress next week. the speech was orchestrated by republicans without the white house's consent. many democrats plan to skip the speech. meanwhile iran launches massive series every military exercises including attack on a replica of an us aircraft carrier. the drills happened near the straight, the strategic waterway transit point for fifth the world's oil. the drills came just day after iran agreed another round of talks aimed at containing its nuclear program. iran's president says the country will continue their military path even through these negotiations. >> okay, let's check on the roads in delaware. already sussex county delaware hearing woodbridge school district is closed so they're dealing with more snow down there. >> right. sussex county of course the southern most county of delaware, and that's where much of this weather is hitting right now. gregg late on joins us on the phone from del dot. how is it looking on the

roads? >> reporter: roads starting to get covered in sussex county. >> can you tell us anything more? can you add some detail to that about how many plows you might have out or what you're doing it make the road conditions good for the good people of the first state? >> i don't have a number on the plows, but we have all of our crews in sussex county out now working. they are spreading salt, and as the snow continues to accumulate they will be plowing and doing other things to address the situation. >> how long have they been working on the roadways, since last night or just earlier this morning? >> reporter: they've been working since 4:00 a.m. >> okay, and we'll let you go, gregg, thank for your time, appreciate it, sir. six 6ers didn't think michael carter williams in their future plans but they met up with him last night. what happened when the sixers took on the bucks. and, we're taking a live look in atlantic city. oh ya, seeing some activity there. we'll check back in with sue to get an update on this

6:30 am
on the forecast, we understand that, but if you're in delaware, if you're in most of south jersey, there are some places probably seeing snow falling pretty heavily at least, briefly, and then it will let up for little bit. and there is sussex county, delaware, down into ocean sit maryland, and the eastern shore of maryland, we move up north, there is new castle county delaware, also getting some snow. light snow maybe falling in chester, lancaster counties, but it is heavier in the places where we have that winter weather advisory, in effect. we'll look more in depth at radar in a moment. bus stop buddy ready for some snow with his snow boots on, all set for that, if you are going to get some. so going to gave you a four today, for the folks who will have a terrible time traveling around this morning but not everybody is going to see accumulating snow. so your commute this morning may not be a lot of fun. some flurries, 7:00, snow 8:00, even in the city we could be seeing some snow, so make sure to slow down. temperatures will stay in the 20's and then later on this afternoon, it will look a lot
6:31 am
better. we may even see little bit of sunshine maybe just few left-over flurries, this evening. but, we do have much better afternoon commute than we do in the morning. so temperatures will remain in the 20's, for the rest of the day. and that's a look at your weather for this thursday, bob kelly is standing by. >> hey, i like your little dashboard thing going thon. >> yes. >> do you have a cassette player? >> automatic car ya. >> good morning everybody 6:31 hello to rehoboth beach delaware. here is a live look what is out your front door, if you are living down in delaware, or if you look out your front door right now. what are they talking about? no snow yet. this is what's on the way live look from rehoboth beach. an example of what happens pretty quickly once the flakes start to fall. live look at dewey beach delaware quickly getting snow covered. so the del dot crews hopefully were out on overnight putting down the brine and treating the road surface but it is
6:32 am
accumulates pretty quickly. what i am concerned about is underneath this dusting or coating, is the left over ice from the last storm. and again you really can't -- won't be able to see that once we start to see the precipitation, and that snow start to accumulate. here is a live look, at different story though. i-295 southbound, at route 30 an accident right underneath our traffic light here. but as you head southbound, that left lane taken out. see the difference in the road conditions. so depending upon where you begin and ends your trip, the road conditions are going to change and change quickly during our morning rush hour. that is the toughest part about this storm. it is the timing, it is hitting us during our morning rush hour. live look at i95 coming up from del coach roads are dry in pennsylvania, at least right now 422, coming in from royersford collegeville, not problem yet headed into saint gabe's, little bit of slow down here on the eastbound 30 bypass, we got a disable
6:33 am
vehicle, right near business route 30, but again, it is one of those upside down types of storms. where delaware and south jersey is seeing all of the snow first. and just some light flurries starting to hit here west chester, and chester county. south 95 just under a half hour out of the northeast into downtown. and mass transit running with no delays. chris, al edge, back over to you. >> 6:33, thank you bob. more closing coming in. cape may city elementary schools are closed and the west cape may school district is also closed. >> absolutely, so jennifer joyce in cape may county, new jersey looking at the weather for us. boy, really starting to come down jen? >> reporter: it is, and i was forced to put on my hat and my hood here, because it is coming down pretty steadily. only within the last hour or so. and already, there is this slight accumulation here. but it is coming down fast. we are looking at the roadways now. you know, cars still moving by pretty quickly. however, it is 31 degrees, that's below freezing, so we always think that the roads are going to get dicey specially when you don't see
6:34 am
that much accumulation, you don't think you have anything to worry about. but there have got to be some slick spots out there when you are not speccing it. so you might want to take it easy now that we are into the morning rush hour. so back out here live, we are, you can see again the snow falling. so we're going to continue to navigate. we'll go throughout cape may county, i believe we are headed to ocean city, eventually. so we will keep up posted on what we are seeing again pretty steady snowfall out here right now alex, chris? >> at least road looks clear at this point. all right thank you. 6:34, series of shootings kept philadelphia police very busy overnight. >> and this violence ended in death. fox 29's steve keeley live at police headquarters, with the struggle details of violent night in philadelphia. >> less time it talks to watch a football game, two and a half hours before midnight and quarter after 23:00 different shootings scenes, four different victims, three murder evidences.
6:35 am
one woman, two men. let's go to where the two men were killed. that's the latest scene both of them walking together on the sidewalk here just off grays ferry avenue, and on side street, latona. one every them actually had a gun on him as well. he had the gun in his pocket, he never got to pull it out because somebody pulled semiautomatic gun on them, got nine quick shots off and killed both of these guys. the second guy pronounced dead at 4:00 this morning. >> at the hospital police found a revolver, handgun in his pocket. based on balistic evidence on the scene we know that at least nine shots were fired from a sim automatic weapon. we found nine spent shell casings, all in very close proximity, to where both of these victims were laying on the highway. which is an indication that the shooter was in very close proximity to both of these victims when firing the shots.
6:36 am
>> well, here is where the first murder the night happened. just before midnight. now you're on the other side of town, north philadelphia, here on westmoreland, 34 year old woman driving this town car, you see, smashed into parked cars, women, somebody fired 11 shots at her, one of them hit her in the arm. the bullet then went through her arm into her chest and she was pronounced dead. >> evidence on the scene we know at least 11 shots were fired from a large caliber semiautomatic weapon. we found 11 spent shell casings on the highway. the window to the driver door was down. however, the rear driver door window is broken out. unknown if it was broken out from gunfire or in some other manner. >> so, just inbetween the two murders, a third shooting scene, just matter every inches, or we would have a fourth murder. just inches, the difference between life and death and having another victim here. this is on guyer avenue two,
6:37 am
men came up, tried to carjack him. he took off like that woman did. and he got away. but somebody fired a bunch of bullets into his car. and one of those bullets grazed him in the head. that is the difference between having three murder victims in two and a half hours and four just that much space likely. >> hard to imagine it could have been even worse. >> the time frame, two and a half hours. all right, thank you steve. 6:37. later this morning the philly coalition advocating for public schools will board buses for the state capitol to rally for fair budget. after the rally they plan to personally meet with legislatures, they want pennsylvania governor tom wolf to increase funding for schools. wolf delivers his first budget address next tuesday. and pennsylvania house of representatives will vote today on bill to privatize state-run wine and liquor stores. the propose at calls for closing most of the state's 600 stores, and sell nearly 1200 licenses to retail stores. pennsylvania governor tom wolf says that he'll veto that bill. so much for a clean get
